I've been a vegetarian for a few years, and recently made the switch to a vegan diet. I'm loving all the benefits of eating more plant-based foods, but I'm a little worried about getting enough protein. I know that protein is important for building and repairing muscle, and I also want to make sure that I'm getting enough to feel satiated and energized throughout the day.
I know that there are plenty of vegan and vegetarian protein sources out there, like beans, lentils, tofu, and nuts. But I want to make sure that I'm not missing out on any essential amino acids or other nutrients. Are there any tips or tricks for ensuring that I'm getting enough protein on a vegan or vegetarian diet? Is there an ideal amount of protein that I should be aiming for each day?
Thanks in advance for your help!
